      @groundbeetle I agree some roses are prone to diseases. I've found it tends to be the older generation of roses as later ones are grown to be more resistant. I had an assortment of roses in my last garden and the only one that seemed to suffer from black spot (late in the flowering season) was of the older generation, a red floribunda rose named 'Rob Roy' below....
